Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack.
We’re at a time in history where the great musicians of my favorite art form are passing with some regularity.
Last week, we lost a titan.
Clark Terry “has joined the big band in heaven where he’ll be singing and playing with the angels.”
He was a member of the Ellington and Basie bands and was on the bandstand for some of the great hits in jazz history.
A fan favorite was Terry’s ebullient “Mumbles,” played here with the OP trio.
Clark, you’ll be missed.
